ABOUT THIS RING

We've never seen anything quite like this ravishing rarity dating from the early-to-mid 1800s (!) A trio of elongated antique oval cushion-cut diamonds are dramatically set off against a glossy royal blue background composed of enamel-like glass textured on the reverse with a micro-waffled design (we're not sure how it's made!). These in turn are framed in glittering rose-cut diamonds, set in silver over 18K gold, supported by diamond-set trefoil foliate motif shoulders. This fascinating, unique, and highly collectable jewel curves comfortably over the finger and, despite its advanced age, is eminently wearable. The hallmarks on the base of the ring shank indicate the ring was imported into France from an unknown treaty country. Currently ring size 7 1/4.

Georgian Jewelry

True antiques, Georgian jewels are the earliest pieces in our collection. Lovely foil-backed stones in mixed-metal settings were made to shine by candlelight over dinner and in the drawing rooms of their genteel wearers. Many pieces were made in memory of loved ones or as “memento mori”—literal reminders of mortality that Georgians saw as sophisticated, rather than morbid. While the delicacy of Georgian era settings has been replaced by more modern methods, the cuts and styles have continued to fascinate jewelry lovers.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
